Gaël Etock, a young Cameroonian striker who as brought through Barcelona’s youth system, is set to join Sporting on loan after having been signed by Chelsea.
Barcelona had the youngster set for stardom but Chelsea have come into to swoop for the starlet. Etock, inevitably, has earned comparison to former Barcelona man, Samuel Eto’o.
It is a strange transfer though, as it’s doubtful just how many minutes Etock will get here at Sporting. With new signing of Ricky van Wolfwinkel and Hélder Postiga as the established strikers, chances maybe few and far between for Etock.
